The joy of birth
Leaves the mind boggling
At the scare of death.

For as time marks a beginning
So its tireless hands
Tick to an abrupt ending.

It is not death that we should fear
But the sorrow accompanied
By an unfulfilled life.

In the darkness of its clenched fist,
An abduction sharper
Than the edge of a crescent moon

The curtain falls on an era,
Yet somewhere on the sphere
Marks another genesis.

 In your seemingly boundless,
Yet limited time
Your vigour and enthusiasm
Was second only to your will

For it takes
True masculine strength
To beget two sons

Time has frozen
Darkness has fallen
Your time has completed its oscillation

But in your demise,
We wouldn’t suffer
Salty tears to roll down

But heave a sigh
Of concordance
Because God has called you home

Rest in Bliss Osondu Alozie
-         For Gazie, a brother and true friend.

No Love

There’s no passion in your eyes, no fire to justify the folly of my feelings

There’s no warmth in your body, no comfort absorbed when I hold you close

There’s no smile on your lips, no motivation to ply this vague journey called “Romance”

There’s no wonder in your thoughts, no surprises to keep the suspense alive

There’s no magic in your touch, no reaction to change my life status

There’s no fragrance from your skin, no reason to come close to you again

There’s no melody in your voice, no cause to break this ghastly silence

There’s no beauty in you, no reason to look your way when boredom clinches my soul

There’s no rhythm in your gait, no reason to walk beside you

There’s no spark in your kiss, no stimulus to bring on the goose bumps

There's no joy in your presence, no fulfillment in your appearance

There’s no absence in your absence, perfection was missing when you came in

In the end I realize there’s no love for you
